Denounce Radical Feminism!
Posted on 11/04/2002 6:57:11 AM PST by gophergop
I'm not sure if you are familiar with what's going on at Augusta National Golf Club.
But a feminist mob led by a woman named Martha Burk, desperate for attention, is demanding that the club open its doors to women...what's more, she's threatened to hold boycotts and go after the sponsors and the player's wives if she doesn't get her way...
there's just one problem...
the club is private and accepts no government money...therefore, it can invite anyone it pleases to join under the First Amendment of the Constitution's right to freedom of assembly.
If you like Golf or if you enjoy watching the Masters and treasure its rich heritage or for the sake of the First Amendment, I urge you to sign a petition denouncing Martha Burk's bully tactics.
If you support it, please sign a petition here: http://www.petitiononline.com/augusta/petition.html
Please also tell a friend or two about this, and we can stop her!

Feminists are so lame. Just like all the other leftists and progressives, they continue to deny basics of human nature. When was it . . . like 10 or 15 years ago that they started trying to break into men's clubs. But does anyone remember when a man, trying to make a simple point, tried to enroll in (I think it was) the women-only Mill's College? All these radical feminists stood outside their college and wailed and screamed because they didn't want men in their private classes. I can't stand hypocrites like that. They seem incapable of balancing reality. They act like we're still living in the Victorian age, but they still can't admit (even with all their social experiments in absolute equality falling flat) that men and women are different.

A rat is a dog is a pig is a feminist...
(with profound apologies to rats, dogs and pigs.)
God, the biggest sham brought on by the Feminists is that acting feminine is a sign of weakness....I don't think I'll ever get over that one :)
The 1st Ammendment goes two ways. Protest and calling for boycotts is a 1st Ammendment right equally valid to the right of free association. This is an interesting case in that both participants in the controversy are acting withing their 1st Ammendment rights.
